This restaurant was recommended to us by the GM at the hotel we stay at several times each month. We were so glad that we took his advice and gave it a try. It's a little hard to get to, tucked away upstairs in the corner of the shopping center, but worth the effort. The ambiance is very pleasing, nicely... More

I have dined here for lunch many times over the years and it is always good. I especially like the tofu curry dish, but the chicken and shrimp curries are also great. The rolls are delicious and the tea is excellent. Service is spot on. Overall, a great place to have lunch. You will almost always go home with a... More

East/West is extremely convenient for me during the lunch hour, so I find myself here 5-6 times a year. Each time it is dependably good. Noodle bowls and Pho are generous and flavorful. A wide range of stir fry entrees are available, including a good selection for those who go meatless. Reasonable prices and generally attentive service and appropriate time... More

Went here for a business lunch after a recent trip to Japan. Had the Shoyu ramen with an extra poached egg. Ramen was delicious and on par with some of the really good ramen we had in Japan. What a treat to find in Salt Lake! Also very good value with big bowl of ramen for $9. The broth had... More

Once you get past cultural difference (when you walk in the restaurant you often get asked what you want) you will grow to love this place. The Pot Stickers, Lettuce Wraps and Chicken Curry are high quality, for a reasonable price. I'm still trying to locate a recipe to make this curry at home and have it taste as great....or... More

We had the following: GYOZA (potstickers) - filled with meat and vegetable fully and tasted good even without sauce. No whatever filling like many other Asian restaurant. SHOYU RAMEN - the soup was so good with depth of Umami and better than other specialized Ramen restaurants, we thought. If your teenager is not full, you can order extra noodle to... More

We have enjoyed East-West Connection for many years now, but have found the quality has decreased somewhat over the past 2-3 years. What was once an excellent restaurant serving very flavorful food, is now just okay. Spring rolls remain a high point and no meal here should begin otherwise. Pan-fried noodles with chicken was good but not great. Look-luck beef...once... More

I went here solo as in town for business and was going to get the noodles but she recommended the chicken curry. It came out very quick, was super hot, and enough for two I bet there was way over a pound of chicken. Super tasty will come back again if I find myself in the area

We went there for Ramen noodles for lunch. They were very much authentic Japanese style ramen noodles! Our server was very sweet and also professional, she was an excellent server. We tried their Shio, Shoyu, Tonkotsu ramens, and all of them were so tasty. The price for ramen noodles were very reasonable, too. We sat by the window with a... More

The food is excellent. I spent a month in Vietnam, becomming very familiar with authentic Vietnamese food. East West Connection does it right. The spices are probably turned down a bit to accomodate the American palate, but still the taste is authentic. Full and rich. I've has about everything on the menu, and it's all good.
